Fashion lore decrees that everyone should own at least one little black dress, but there’s an equally viable case to be made for the little white dress. First of all, it doesn’t actually have to be little (midi, mini, ankle-grazing, etc.), especially if you’re wearing your LWD in the city and not at the beach.
Second, unlike the LBD, the LWD doesn’t rely on a glamorous invite to rouse it from its dormant state in your wardrobe—any (vaguely) sunny day will do. Throw it on, reach for a bag with an equally summery state of mind and you’re good to go.
White may be associated with wedding outfits, but a belted linen dress, for example, suggests nothing close to weddings. Another plus: White suits all skin tones and complements accessories in all colourways, so it’s a foolproof option whatever your agenda.
